Luthier's Featherweight Digital Caliper

About This Item

A shop favorite, now more affordable than ever!
Our Luthier's Featherweight Digital Caliper is the perfect first step to doing better, more precise work.

Great for apprentices and for travel
By machining this caliper out of ultra-durable resin instead of metal, we've made a tool that is perfect for apprentices, students, or your traveling toolkit. It offers the same precision of our original Luthier's Digital Caliper—at about half the weight.

Customized for fretwork!
We added a custom jaw notch for accurately measuring fretwire crown height (the height above the fretboard). This is essential for comparing new wire to original wire. And thanks to a great idea by repairman Frank Ford, we've also added a notch on the depth gauge to measure fret height on the instrument—a real time saver.

Handy for lots of other measuring jobs in the shop—nuts, saddles, tuners, tool setups and more. Featuring LCD digital readouts in inches and millimeters. It measures outside, inside and depth dimensions up to 6" (154mm), with super-accurate 0.0005" (0.01mm) resolution.

    Features:
  • Made of ultra-durable resin for lighter weight
  • Measures fret height before AND after fret installation
  • Accurate readouts in inches and millimeters
  • Accurate 0.0005" (0.01mm) resolution
  • Measures outside, inside, and depth dimensions
  • CR2032 battery included

These calipers are perfect for light jobs and quick measurements. Need something heavier duty? Our original Luthier's Digital Caliper is made from stainless steel and has extra features for a lifetime of use in a busy shop. The extra versatility and precision have kept them on pro benches for years.

It works and it's affordable

It does it's job, it is even specifically designed for fret wire measuring, and after I buy it I still have money for food and rent

A Useful Second Caliper

By

Verified Buyer


I have a traditional caliper with very small mm and Imperial markings, but I wanted one with a digital interface for quick, VISIBLE conversions. This simple featherweight does that, plus having the fret (and other things!) measuring cut out. Now, a lock would be helpful...

It's a bit finicky

This works but at times it gives me different reading for the same item. I was try to measure the diameter of my bridge pins and i was getting different numbers.

Certainly better than not having one

By

Basically the title. It's not the most accurate, but it's quicker, more accurate, and more convenient than not having any caliper, and the luthier specific tweaks are already coming in handy. I'm sure the fancier one several times the price of this would have less play and be more accurate, but also this was 20 NZD.

digital caliper...the less expensive one

By

Verified Buyer


Bought this so I wouldn't have to 'modify' my more expensive caliper...and probably screw it up. The step and crown measuring capability is what I was looking for. A thinner step that would fit in a fret slot to measure tang depth would be great...maybe someone will get to that later. Stew mac has always been great...with parts, tools, etc. and advice. Thanks guys.

Glad I Bought It

The price doesn't equal the quality. This caliper doesn't feel as good as one of (higher?) quality but: it works perfectly it's just as accurate as my Sxxxxxxt. It is an extremely good buy and one I wouldn't hesitate to make again.
